On this amazing Educational Adventure, we will descend slowly into the earth in a mine car as we enter the old Slope #190. We will watch the sky slowly disappear. Soon we will reach “the foot.” Then, we will explore 300 feet beneath the earth through an anthracite coal mine originally opened in 1860. We will accompany a miner in the winding underground gangways and rock tunnel past three different veins of hard coal.**Students are encouraged to bring shoes and a sweater.
